I'm not sure at all.

In 5.3.1 Changelog:
The new aesni plugin provides CBC, CTR, XCBC, CMAC, CCM and GCM crypto
primitives for AES-128/192/256. The plugin requires AES-NI and PCLMULQDQ
instructions and works on both x86 and x64 architectures. It provides
superior crypto performance in userland without any external libraries.
I don't think that aesni plugin is using libipsec, but perhaps I'm wrong.
